Crowns and Bridges

Crowns

Crowns are used to replace broken down, decayed or misshapen teeth or teeth which have been damaged by an accident. Crowns can be made out of traditional materials such as gold, porcelain fused to metal or all porcelain. Porcelain crowns can be made completely indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Crown materials include Procera, which is a modern all porcelain crown, produced using cutting edge CAD/CAM technology to produce a crown that is extremely strong and looks great.

Bridges

Bridges are a series of crowns joined together to cover or close a space left by the loss of a tooth. They are permanent and once bonded into place will look and feel like a natural tooth. They normally last 10 – 15 years.
